Trump says he should have
left UCLA players in Chinese jail

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/19/2017 8:46:20 PM

Washington - President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. (Snip) Says Trump: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!" Trump later tweeted: "Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!"

Comments:
Maybe President Trump can have them extradited back for another "burglary" they may have committed at hotel. I am 100% with President Trump in the fecal response by the players, UCLA, and their families. They should have immediately acknowledged him, and President Xi for his leniency.

Those jerks are dang lucky they did not do this in a country that chops off a hand for stealing. 10 years in a china prison might have taught them a lesson.

Jeeze! This make our President sound petty and petulant. to hell with t6hose guys. They thanked him, so there. that the moronic ´daddy´ of one of them has this much hate in his heart, so what? The guy is an idiot! Why does our President think he needs to react to every little petty snipe? Just say, "Well, I´m glad they are home. They are American citizens and I thank God I was able to do something to get them back here to the Land of the Free." To drop into a petty argument with the gutter trash is far below the dignity of the Office.

Couldn´t disagree with #8 more.

For years, Republicans have tried to "play nice", while Demon-RATs spewed every ridiculous attack they wanted. We always took the "high road", but they continued to blame us for all the acrimony in the swamp.

I love that President Trump calls these losers on the carpet every time!!!!! Please let him continue for the rest of his life (and especially the next 7 years of his presidency)!!!!!

Obama probably would have given the family the Bowe Bergdahl treatment -- invited them to the Rose Garden and had a big news production.

President Trump did the right thing in working out the release, and also did the right thing in responding to the father´s ridiculous comments.

OK, President Trump. You got them out. Hooray for you. Somehow I suspect the Chinese threw you a bone...and that Jack Ma, owner of Alibaba and promoter of the game that brought these players to China, had a "minor" part.

The Chinese are big on "face" - they arrested these three "celebrity" fools, and then what to do? This isn´t North Korea. They weren´t going to embarrass Ma, which a prolonged criminal action could easily do. They gain face by being "reasonable" by western standards...house arrest, investigation, and quick release as a "favor" to Trump, who happened to be there visiting "Grandpa Xi", while Ma is kept out of it. Everyone goes away happy, the right people are credited, and the disciplinary problem becomes UCLA´s.

The UCLA players read very carefully prepared statements expressing remorse for their crimes. These were written and edited by Team and University officials in an effort to admit guilt (in video cams from THREE stores!) and to get them back on a path to play for UCLA again. Their statements were robotic.

Yes, it IS a big deal for our President to use one of his "chips" to get these entitled punks out of jail. For Ball´s father to diminish the crime and Trump´s efforts on his son´s behalf is more than ungrateful. It is clueless, lawless and lacking in basic decency. He is a pathetic excuse for a parent.

Good for President Trump for standing up for himself and for principles that most of us abide by. I do not agree with those who say that he should have just let it slide by.

Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith was appointed Wednesday to temporarily fill the Senate seat of Democratic Sen. Al Franken, who resigned amid allegations of sexual misconduct and pressure within his party to leave office. Smith, a Democrat, was appointed by Minnesota Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and will serve until a special election next year to complete Franken’s term ending in 2020. She is expected to run to finish the term. Dayton was under pressure from Washington Democrats to appoint a replacement who would run in 2018. The 59-year-old Smith is a former General Mills executive who in the 1990 started her own

President Donald Trump has spent the better part of his campaign and now, presidency, railing against the media, calling out its members for bias, condemning certain networks for outright targeted take-down attempts of his administration — and according to a new study from the Media Research Center, he kind of has a point. Specifically, the study showed that in September, October and November, almost 91 percent of remarks from reporters’ and other so-called non-partisan-types’ mouths during evening ABC, NBC and CBS broadcasts were anti-Trump in nature. Ninety-one percent. That’s pretty dang significant.

Rep. Mo Brooks announced Wednesday in an emotional House floor address that he has prostate cancer. Mr. Brooks, Alabama Republican, said that losing the Senate primary in October may have saved his life. He was running against eventual nominee Roy Moore, but fell short. He said that if he had won, he would not have been able to schedule his physical, which led to his diagnosis. “God does work in mysterious ways,” he said. Mr. Brooks said he will leave for surgery, which is scheduled for Friday.

A former congressional intern reportedly says she too was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy. Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night. Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship,

Kampala, Uganda - For years African leaders have toyed with the idea of free movement by citizens across the continent, even raising the possibility of a single African passport. Now some countries, most recently Kenya, are taking bold steps to encourage borderless travel that could spur trade and economic growth in a region in desperate need of both. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta announced during his inauguration last week that the East African commercial hub will now give visas on arrival to all Africans. That follows similar measures by nations including Benin and Rwanda. The African Union continental body has cheered

Mr. Trump’s decision, a high-risk foray into the thicket of the Middle East, was driven not by diplomatic calculations but by a campaign promise.

The left, including much of the media, are going nuts now, drooling at Michael Flynn’s guilty plea as if it’s the final nail in President Donald Trump’s coffin — the long-sought means to the impeachment end. It’s not. That’s ludicrous. And the more hours that tick since Flynn announced his guilty plea, the more ludicrous the left’s wild-eyed panting seems. Here are the facts: Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about communications he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on Dec. 22 and 29. In December — after Trump had already won the White House.

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

"Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd.
